If a person dies with a valid will in place, they will have named one or more people, known as executors, to administer the probate process on their estate. Sometimes the process is straightforward and can be carried out by non-professionals. There are many situations however, where a professional is more suited to carry out the probate process including when the:
- executor(s) simply doesn’t have time to do the work
- executor(s) is too emotional or doesn’t feel up to it at the time
- estate needs to Inheritance Tax
- will has created one or more trusts
Most banks and solicitors charge anywhere between 3-8% of the estate (regardless of how much work is involved) plus hourly fees meaning the total bill can spiral out of control. If a bank has prepared your will for you (usually free of charge) there is a good chance you will have appointed them as professional executors. This unfortunately means that they can charge whatever they like to administer your estate when you die. If a bank has prepared your will please contact me and I will clarify your situation.
